Review: Milling About at Milestones

by gigi on August 28, 2007

I went to Milestone’s on Lougheed in Buranby last week with Derek, Miguel, Tab, Terence, and Dustin for dinner. Normally, I don’t go to Milestone’s to eat. Not that there is anything terribly wrong with it, but I just find that there are places with better food for better value. In any case, I hadn’t been to Milestone’s for almost a year so it was time to see what had changed.

We decided to share the spinach and artichoke dip for an appetizer. This is one of Milestone’s signature dishes and is normally a popular choice. Although it was good, the size of the dish was quite a bit smaller than I had remembered. At $9.99, I’m not sure if this was a good deal…even though they refilled our chips for free.

The guys mostly just ordered burgers and I didn’t get a chance to take pics of their dishes before they dug in. :) Tab and Dustin added some watercress dip to go with their fries. Personally, I couldn’t taste the watercress at all…but the mayo-based dip was good to dip the fries in.

I tried to be healthy and went for the grilled chicken salad. I had tried this years ago and remembered it to be pretty good. The salad was surprisingly filling but I suspect this was due to the generous sprinkling of tortilla chips. This probably wasn’t as healthy as I had hoped with all those chips, but it did add a nice crunch. The dressing itself was a peanut-y cilantro dressing which went great with the thinly sliced chicken and veggies.

In all, the food and ambiance at Milestone’s was pretty good. I still find the food to be a bit overpriced for what you get but at least you always know what to expect. Be careful if you are sitting outside on the patio at the Lougheed Milestone’s though. We got attacked by a couple of hungry bees a few times. :)
